HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Water pressure has been restored at Hobby Airport after a crew hit a line there this morning.

We're told the crew was working on the new garage for the international terminal when it happened. Shortly after noon, water from reserve supply was brought in.

During the outage, airport personnel supplied hand sanitizer and buckets of water to flush toilets. They also handed out bottled water to anyone who needed it.

It's not the first time Hobby Airport has had water issues. Just over a year ago, water was out there for five hours after a pipe broke.
